Management of multijoint stiffness of bilateral upper limbs secondary to heterotopic ossification: Case report and literature review

Hong-wei Min, MD, et al.

Heterotopic ossification (HO) may affect some Veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and severely interfere with their activities of daily living (ADLs). This original report describes a patient with multijoint ankylosis secondary to HO in TBI who was treated with a comprehensive rehabilitation management protocol. The patient achieved great improvement in ADLs after the treatment. The protocol deserves clinical application.
